Let me start by apologizing for ruining your breakfast, and quite possibly your lunch too. About this time last year I stumbled across a 1980s Chrysler Cordoba that had been treated to the Superbird look, tall wing, nose cone and all, and while there was plenty of vocal dissent, there was also a chance that with the right color and a few tweaks on the original concept, that the Cordoba Daytona could actually work.
There is no way…no way in hell…that whatever this thing is will ever work. I’m not struggling for a way to describe it, I’m just struggling to put what I’m seeing into words that Brian and Chad won’t fire me for using. It looks like someone took a 1967 Plymouth VIP and a Nissan Altima, put them into a giant industrial mixer, threw in half of a parts store’s worth of chrome stick-on crap and switched the power to “kill”. Virgil Exner himself couldn’t out-ugly this thing if he gave it his best effort. Even Stevie Wonder would flinch. If I have to say anything nice about it, then the paint job is nice and restrained, and the car looks to be well-kept.
I’ve caught hell for ripping on people’s projects before, and I’m sure I’ll hear about it again. But if you can rationalize this car’s existence beyond “Because they can”, then leave a comment below explaining so, because right now I’m stumped.
Thanks to the many people who sent this to me. You owe me…eye-bleach is expensive!
